It was a relaxing break on a beautiful island we saw lots of fish snorkelling, beautiful sea and staff couldn't do enough for you, so friendly and helpful, also very peaceful The shuttle boat was a great service and very efficient we went over to the private beach which was beautiful definitely recommend this
We were in room 916 it was up a very steep hill and lots of other villas also, which was fine for us but may not be for everyone. The food and drinks was lovely but very expensive compared to the rest of Borneo but it should be expected as in a tourist spot!
The staff were great, Ramesh, Sylvester, Mary and Annie along with all the other staff really went out of their way to make our stay special. The location is great set on an island with the tropical forest surroundings, we saw monkeys, pigs, and lizards. The snorkeling off the beach was really good.
Everything was very good. The food was excellent and the staff good. Location was great
The snorkelling trip wasnt very well explained and was overpriced for what some of our team did.
